Torgeir Waldemar is a Norwegian Singer Songwriter. He is driven to play a whole lot of live shows and have a lot of dynamic in them. Currently, he is releasing his latest album “Jamais Vu”.
A drive for live, music evolving with every show that you play. Torgeir is a musician that likes to keep things vivid and alive, never a dull moment. If you are familiar with a song it may not be exactly as you heard it on album, but a brand new version of what you have known. So that live learning and growing of a song could also be captured again. “Jamais Vu” is that. Songs that were written before, evolved and grown during various live shows and now recorded again. Some acoustic and some electric, but all are old songs that have been reborn and recorded.
Rather interesting choices for instruments are making the songs surely a bit more remarkable. If you study the original released songs you can surely hear a difference. Better? Well, that is a question that you can debate about. Sometimes the songs are rather different and some are closer to its original. In any case you can say its renewing.
But what all of it has in common, is that you can clearly hear that this is an artist that can bring great live experiences. And that is something you need to see and yearn for after the release. An artist that lives for liveshows, with an album like this to tease you to one, sure that is something you could mark on your calendar when he announces a show in your area!
